Underlying Tensions of Small Business vs. Corporations

small business

The goal of every small business is to grow up to be a big business someday. Until that time comes the relationship between a small business and a large corporation can be rather strained. Big businesses tend to dominate the marketplace, making it hard for small businesses competing with the big guys. This can lead to uncertainty for small businesses struggling to survive. Large corporations may be getting a greater share of the marketplace, but they also must fend off challenges from small businesses which have the ability to be more flexible in their product and service offerings, even though they can’t pull in the resources the big guys have at their disposal. Regardless if you are a small or large, business Ethernet is a must have for conducting necessary business.

Survival of the Fittest

The underlying tension is a survival instinct. Small businesses fear, number one, that they won’t be able to match price or that they won’t have enough resources, staff, or time to pull off their projects and make enough money to grow. While large businesses fear they will and then present a huge challenge to their own business models that won’t be able to react swiftly enough. Big businesses fear losing their business overnight to a more nimble competitor.

The Internet: The Great Equalizer
Even though small businesses don’t have the capital available to large businesses it’s a great time to be a small business because the Internet evens the score in many ways.

The Internet has provided a boon to both small businesses and large corporations. Small businesses can leverage their websites to appear bigger than they actually are, thus grabbing some of the prestige of a larger business. Large businesses can use the Internet to cut costs even more significantly and make them more responsive by automating help functions and product ordering online.

However, the internet has also been ideal to create distinct niches for both entities, thus helping to eliminate some of the tension. For instance, small businesses can make use of online local listings more than a big business, which has a global business model. They may both still be using the Internet, but they are learning to compete in different marketplaces to keep both alive and thriving.

Technology Can Blur the Line Between Big and Small Businesses

The price of technology has drastically dropped as the capability and functionality have increased. That means that even small businesses can now afford to use technologies like VoIP and cloud computing. Broadband is available for small businesses, making it possible for them to deliver many of the remote services that only big businesses were able to afford previously.

Small businesses may not have the money to hire a large staff or the resources to buy equipment, but they don’t have to these days. If they have a secure, and efficient, connection that allows them to communicate without the need to hire more staff, like an online website, they can leverage technology to save them money while growing their business more efficiently.

Large businesses also can reach out to their locations around the globe by invoking communications technologies that have that reach without additional expenses in hiring or even laying transoceanic lines (when’s the last time you heard of that happening?).

As long as they have a good provider, they can leverage that infrastructure with offerings like Software-as-a-Service that will allow them to continue to offer their products and services anywhere in the world at a fraction of the cost in the past. It also offers them the flexibility of changing their online offerings quickly without incurring massive development and infrastructure costs normally associated with large businesses.

As both small and large businesses learn their defined niches online, they will continue to reduce tensions and create a healthier economy where both small and large businesses can prosper, but not at each other’s expense

Privacy Protection: Reducing the Risks

privacy protection

The one area of concern and consideration when it comes to technology is around privacy issues, or the lack of. No item of technology is entirely secure and when there are a number of users and people that have access to private information, the risks of data being lost, stolen or tampered with increases significantly. As technology becomes more useful in the workplace, protections need to be put in place to reduce the risk of data tampering occurring – this is particularly relevant with the number of personal devices like laptops for instance, that are being used to work on or access the information through a method that has not stemmed from the working environment.

A BYOD policy is instrumental in the protection of business data. As more employees use their own items of technology to complete work tasks, there are an increased number of ways to access private data. Fortunately, there are also plenty of solutions available like cloud storage services and computer monitoring software, etc. to prevent or discourage breach and leakage of data.

Securing the Data

Employers and organisations need all possible measures and precautions to ensure the security of their data. Misuse and unsolicited access to the data needs to be prevented. Computer monitoring software should be installed on employees’ laptops to discourage them from accessing data they’re not supposed to be accessing while connected to shared networks, and also to reduce the risk of data leakage via email or any other channel.

Communication

Email accounts tend to be the most vulnerable data storage system and can be accessed by anyone. The cloud is the latest software development that has increased levels of security to prevent private emails from being accessed.

Storage

Again, the cloud has better safety concerning the storage of data and can provide the security features that will prevent the unwanted access of business files.

Encryption

With the number of devices having access to shared networks of information, it is beneficial to have files and disks encrypted to protect the items that do not need to be accessed by anyone that does not have permission.

Data Wiping

Mobile devices are the most common forms of access to shared networks of business information, and there is the ability to destroy the data from a mobile device to ensure its safety and security.

Passwords

The oldest form of technological security, but still one of the most effective, having different passwords for different accounts is one of the best ways to eliminate the risks of data being accessed.

BYOD is now very much a part of corporate life and allows for constant access to applications whether at work or on the move. 36% of people use their own devices for work-based tasks.

Taking Action

66% of those that do use their own devices for work believe they are responsible for ensuring their devices are as secure as possible to protect company data. Although this may be the case, employers are obligated to put their own protections in place to ensure there is a smaller chance of data being affected.

  • Employers need to take control of the business’s IT infrastructure and ensure each possible security measure is in place to eliminate any unwanted access.
  • The inbound and outbound access to networks need to be secure and only recognised devices permitted access
  • Mobile device management is crucial and employees need to be aware of the restrictions that are put in place
  • Users and applications need to be monitored and controlled not just the devices that are being used
